I recently requested prayer for a friend of mine, who has cancer. I'm not sure how he contracted his form of cancer and what type he may have. It is a grueling time for him and his family, while all we can do is sit on the sidelines and wait. A certain type of cancer known as mesothelioma is a result of exposure to certain chemicals. This is one that the family, needs to consult a lawyer about, concerning the liabilities of the companies or public service units.
